Ok so last month I upgraded everything in my computer other than my graphics card, I replaced my old generic 500W PSU with the highly rated 'Antec Truepower TP-650'.

It's been working fine but just recently I've noticed when I turn the PC on in the morning the fan is very loud, sounding kinda like a chainsaw lol. So I was wondering is it failing?

I would like to return if i can and if its on its way out already.

Other than the noise the pc runs perfectly fine, I'll post any info if required when asked.

Are you sure its the PSU fan? I bet you have something stuck in a fan, like a cable tie, or a fan is clipping on a power cable or something. Check ALL your fans.

Well I have held my ear near when the case is open and it sounds like its coming from there, ill check when i but up on Sunday. Other than the graphics card its the only fan at the bottom of the pc, and i doubt the tiny fan on the 6600 can make a noise that loud.
